Scholarships & Financial Aid

Office of International Education Scholarships

Due to generous donations in support of education abroad, the Office of International education has limited funds available for study abroad scholarships.  These scholarships are awarded based on academic merit and financial need. The deadline to apply is November 1 for study abroad the following spring semester and April 1 for study abroad the following fall semester. In order to apply, prepare a statement of need, and submit it to the Office of International Education before the abovementioned deadline. You can email the statement to Noah Goldblatt, the Director of Study Abroad. Preference will be given to students studying abroad at Champlain Abroad campuses in Montreal and Dublin. All scholarship applicants must meet the criteria below:

  • Be enrolled in a degree program at Champlain College
  • Have a minimum GPA of 3.0
  • Prepare a statement of need for the Office of International Education by April 1st for Fall semester and November 1st for Spring 

Champlain Students

Once you are accepted to the Champlain Abroad program, you will qualify for an adjustment to your financial aid package that will meet your semester abroad costs. The adjustment will reflect the cost of participating in the Montreal or Dublin program and excludes work-study, which cannot be transferred to either international program. 

For Montreal, Dublin, and Global Partner programs students receive institutional financial aid.  For 3rd party study abroad programs, only federal aid is available, and students are required to stay enrolled at Champlain College while studying abroad.  If you would like to appeal to maintain institutional financial aid on a 3rd party program, please do so HERE.  The due date for 3rd party appeals is October 15 for spring and April 1 for fall programs.  A minimum GPA of 3.5 and justification from your Program Director is required to appeal 3rd party institutional aid.  Students who are dependents of Champlain employees or tuition-exchange recipients, can only apply their scholarship toward the Montreal and Dublin programs.

Non-Champlain Students

Non-Champlain students accepted to the Champlain Abroad Program in Montreal or Dublin seeking student loans and federal or state grants while studying abroad with Champlain Abroad must visit the study abroad and financial aid offices at their home institution and ask to have a consortium agreement established with the Champlain College Office of Financial Aid. This allows the home institution to process federal aid and transfer it to Champlain Abroad for a semester or year abroad. Your home institution's financial aid office should contact the Champlain College Office of Financial Aid to process the request. Please allow 2-4 weeks for processing. Note: You are responsible for knowing and adhering to the deadlines for applying for financial aid for your home institution.
